The Destination
Like its namesake President Grover Cleveland, there's a lot of Grover, North Carolina, to love. This town on the South Carolina border has a healthy appreciation for its past, perhaps most proudly displayed on Gingerbread Row: a stretch of Cleveland Avenue lined with restored historic homes. Just across the border in South Carolina, Kings Mountain National Military Park preserves its Revolutionary War battlefield while offering winding nature trails for hiking and biking. And less than an hour east of Grover is the thoroughly modern city of Charlotte.

The Digs
The Inn of the Patriots is housed in the former Hambright family mansion, built in 1879. These days, it's owned by former White House Chef Marti Mongiello and his wife Chef Stormy, who focus on serving up delicious fare and teaching tastemakers in a relaxing B&B setting. The inviting guest rooms blend American, European, and Asian décor and feature luxurious robes, satellite TV, and DVD players. Each morning, the chefs roll out a three-course breakfast sure to impress any palate. They also run cooking classes and the on-site Presidential Culinary Museum, including an exceptional pizza-making class.

The Diversions
The Culinary Arts Food & Fun Institute
Ni Fen Bistro
